Girls' new single adds Spice to Children in Need
BBC Children in Need is delighted to announce that the Spice Girls will be donating all of their profits from their new single – Headlines (Friendship Never Ends) – to the charity's 2007 Appeal.
This single is one of two new songs that the Spice Girls have recorded for their Greatest Hits album and the five-piece will perform the song especially for BBC Children in Need viewers on BBC One on Friday 16 November 2007.
The Spice Girls' last single release was in November 2000, when the band topped the Official UK chart with the double A-side Holler/Let Love Lead The Way.
Melanie Chisolm confirmed the news on BBC Radio 1 saying: "It's really beautiful. Anybody who loved the old Spice Girls stuff is going to love this."
Fans of the Spice Girls who just can't wait until 16 November can look forward to a world exclusive screening of the video of Headlines, which will launch the run up to Children in Need Night, on BBC One on Friday 2 November.
The single will be commercially available from Monday 19 November.
Every single copy sold will help BBC Children in Need in its aim to top last year's total of £33million.
Notes to Editors
All net proceeds from the sale of the single will go to BBC Children in Need.
The BBC Children in Need Appeal is a registered charity, number 802052. For every penny donated to the appeal, a penny will go towards projects working with disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.
